Palestinian Refugees Arrested by Turkish Border Cops on Way to Greece

Palestinian Refugees Arrested by Turkish Border Cops on Way to Greece

Turkish border police arrested Palestinian and Syrian migrants as they attempted to cross the border with Greece through Evros River.

Palestinian activists said the migrants, who fled Syria’s embattled refugee camps of Yarmouk and Khan Eshieh, were transferred to a camp set up in Edirne, northwest of Turkey, and have been facing a squalid humanitarian condition.

Over recent years, Evros River served as a launch-off destination for thousands of illegal migrants wishing to disembark in Greece, fleeing Turkey and nearby conflict zones.

Palestinian refugees from Syria who have been stranded in Greece continue to sound distress signals after most European states opted for a closed-door immigration policy, leaving hundreds of refugees trapped in underequipped makeshift refugee camps.

An agreement between Turkey and Greece to tighten grip on refugees from Syria trying to creep into the Greek territories via the Turkish borders has made the situation far worse. 

Palestinian and Syrian migrants in Turkey face an exacerbated humanitarian situation due to the absence of vital services, including health care, housing, relief assistance, and power and water. The refugees continue denounce the mistreatment and crackdowns they have been subjected to by the Greek police. A number of migrants were injured after they were heavily beaten by cops.

Palestinian refugees from Syria continue to risk their lives onboard the “death boats” to Greece, rummaging around for a momentary respite from the daily scenes of bloodshed and destruction.

AGPS has kept record of the death of dozens of refugees onboard Greece-bound ships. Several others have been arrested by Turkish coast guards near the borders.

Activists estimate that around 4,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria are taking cover in such Greek islands as Lesbos, Mytilene, Chios, Leros, and Kos, among other areas in Greece.
